fairly broad with ther front of technology. but to be really well educated and a specialist in any one of those things, requires a very deep immersion, deep immersion software or bioinfomatics or the various underlying sciences. and i wish i had had a better formal scientific education when i was younger. that more than anything would have helped me, i think. >> rose: here's you what said, my undergraduate degree was in history. i wish i would have been smart enough to excel in math, fitics-- physics or biology because the voyagers and adventurers come from there. >> that's where they start from. and yes, i don't quarrel with any part of that sentiment. i think those are today's voyagers. and they start off with a grounding in those particular sciences. >> rose: and do the business school grads become transactional people and go to wall street and go to financial institutions? >> it's obviously, charlie, unfair to paint a broad-brush here. and there's some very talented people who come out of the business schools. but-- and who join these companies. and a very vital parts of helping the c

openings for a year. >> hmmmm. >> because you are using technology that has never been done before. the flying in spider-man has never been done in theatre. we were really experiencing. >> trying to make it safer. >> well, you know, yes, trying to make it safer. but the major accident that happened had nothing to do with flying. so let's not get into that. but the point is that we were creating something that was technically avant-garde. it had never been done, even with the la, so we had technical problems and our set design that was supposed to be the coup detheatre to end the show didn't work so we were always struggling to get to the end. >> rose: and you always knew. >> we knew exactly. >> rose: nobody could come to you and say we got problems here. >> of course i knew t i would spend every day, 8 shows a week, whenever you have rehearsals spending time trying to fix it and make it better. >> rose: was this the most pressure you had been under. >> i suppose. >> rose: how did you handle the pressure. >> i worked my ass off. i was surprised when i was told that i had let sgchlt

dodge then we do have to cut back more. if it turns out we get another technology revolution like we did with the internet, then we have to cut back lessment i think it's fair to do a lot now but not too much, in 5, 7 years reevaluate where we stand. >> rose: but you want to get us on a growth trajectory. >> and i'm-- . >> rose: that is your primary goal. >> that is my primary goal, growth trajectory in a sustainable way, that doesn't lead to huge debt, doesn't depend on huge debt or inflation. >> rose: how different is what you propose from what bowles simpson was. >> actually not that different. i mean, i think one of the key things that came out of the bowles simpson discussion was the idea of what i call the simpson bowles ratio, that it's a question of how much is done through spending cuts versus tax increases. and bowls simpson said we want it 2 for -- two times as much spending for every tax increase. and i think, frankly, the obama administration is going to come out of these negotiations well above that floor. meaning there is going to be-- . >> rose: 3 to 1. >> i think bet

mobilization to not shoes the campaign infrastructure the technology the sophistication they have and to build from the out side to really do things in that way, mobilize the outside game. i think that is what he believes is the path to progress. >> charlie. >> rose: yes, mark. >> i think the president is remarkably consistent and i think in a second term he's kind of a fixed piece. the big changes for me, there's a new chief of staff a new secretary of treasury new secretary of state new secretary of defense. how all these people fit together as big parts of saying how the operation works. and i think the biggest piece was also a constant in some ways but his role that's fluctuated is the vice president. you talked to members of congress even republicans particularly in the senate and they will say we just don't have contact with the president, we don't have a feel for the president to be able to move things or stick with the agenda. they have great confidence in the vice president and great confidence in the vice president's ability as he showed in the last couple deals at the end of t

technologies that make it possible with a handful of individuals to destroy one of our cities then we're forced, i think, to think anew about our traditional ways of doing business, about how we make decisions, about how has the authority to make what decisions and that has, in fact, i think, probably generated is shift, if you will to the executive branch that the presidential authority is greater now than it was prior to 9/11. and basically for good reason. i don't always agree with the way it's used, but we felt an obligation to move aggressively along those lines. we didn't sit down and seiji we need more powers, we say how are we going to use the technical capability we have to intercept communication between al qaeda overseas and the people they're talking to here at home and what kind of authority do we need from the courts or from the congress. so we go through those exercises but i think it's driven by circumstance as much as it is by philosophy. >> rose: thank you. >> enjoyed it, charlie, good to see you.

technology and solve the world's problems but we can't agree on what the problems are. many people still don't believe in global warming which is understandable because confusion is a symptom of heatstroke. ( laughter ) it's not luke we're going to do category about it. we don't get things done. we've been trying my whole adult live to transition from the paper dollar bill to the coin. can't get it done. we're stymied. you would think it would be simple. they're roughly the same value. don't you feel smooth tipping with these babies? slapping some gold, like you're wyatt erp. nothing says thanks for a job well done like change.

bigger studios like that can't really compete with newer technology. the accessibility of digital recording stuff, you can make a record in your living room. you don't need those big places anymore. but i think those big places are like museums because generations of kids have changed. the world has changed from the music that was made in these places. to me music history is just as important as the president and politics. (applause) >> dave: well, i think you're right. one of the great things about the movie is there's many facets to this story and the one is that digital music makes a huge inroad into music culture and it kind of kicks the legs out from under sound city which was analog. so i can remember and probably everybody's got there story, when i got my first c.d. player and you put the c.d. in and everybody would listen to it and they said "it's so quiet, you can't hear it." that doesn't mean it's better, does it? >> it's funny. in the movie we talk about technology, it has a lot to do with why sound city isn't around anymore. when i was a kid i would have killed to have
